Business Support Organisations

Sub-grants to 8 BSOs will help to establish incubation services for CCI entrepreneurs, particularly women and young people, to support them through the high-risk early stages of development and allow them to build competitive businesses and relevant connections. Incubation programmes will encompass a variety of mentoring, matchmaking, access to finance, and intellectual property rights services. These subgrants will also support the regional development of a CCI ecosystem in the region and foster regional integration and cooperation.
